The lighthouse in Bastrof is about 20 meters high and one of the smallest lighthouses in Germany. Nevertheless, the beacon above Kap Bukspitze - that is why the correct name Leuchtturm Buk - is the highest. It is topographically the highest tower of its kind at almost 80 meters above sea level. In 1878, 18 months after construction began, its beacon shone for the first time up to 18 nautical miles out to the Baltic Sea. For 40 years, the light in the tower has been turning automatically. With good visibility you can see from here to the island of Fehmarn and Warnemünde.The lighthouse is open year-round from 11am to 4pm for visitors, during the summer months until 5pm. Admission per person is 2.50 euros. You can have a coffee break in Café Valentis.
